JoGo Room is an interactive changing room installed inside the changing rooms of fashion and accessories stores.

Its main function is to attend customers requesting other sizes and colours without leaving the changing room, avoiding the annoying situation of having to dress to get another product.

JoGo Room also collects many information of what happens in the changing room, spot where most of the time the purchase is decided and which until now was not measurable.
